Tri Beta seniors Laura Cruz, Ben Alexander and Ian Macklin laugh around the barbeque pit at the cook-off.

The Annual Brisket Cook-Off started homecoming on Oct. 11 at the pavilion. Sponsored by the homecoming committee, the cook-off is a friendly competition where student organizations fight out in the grill, with all profits going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

“One of my favorite memories of the cook-off is hanging out with friends,” senior Geoffrey Johnston said. "I also liked dunking people as well.”

There were 13 organizations involved this year. Tri-Beta won the cook-off, Delta Zeta took second place and Brock and Bridle took third. The judging part of the competition is chosen by four judges and what they look for is original and exquisite taste. The winner of the cook-off gets points added to the organizations for homecoming week.

Delta Zeta freshman Maria Bravo said she has always had a niche for making food and enjoyed cooking at the event. Bravo said she liked the bonding aspect and friendship between the organizations.

“Without Lambda Chi allowing us to use their second smoker there wouldn’t have been any way that we would have even had a brisket to present,” Bravo said
